I have a small upper thoracic hump, are there any exercises that will help reduce it before it gets any worse?

In brief: It depends

If the hump is related to degenerative changes of the bones like what is seen some cases of kyphosis, this may be difficult to resolve.
Also if this is related to a fat pad, again it may be difficult to resolve. Otherwise focus on exercises that improve your posture like yoga, upper/mid back and core exercises. If you'd like more specifics consider a formal consultation.
